Life is a process. The process includes acquiring new information, deciding what’s relevant, updating our roadmap, and navigating our way through often changing and uncertain conditions. Even “normal” circumstances present challenges regarding relationships, job and career, finances, health, parenting, family, and personal responsibilities.

What Is Online Counseling?
Online therapy—otherwise known as teletherapy, e-therapy, online counseling, cyber-counseling, and e-counseling–delivers the benefits of working with a licensed counselor, psychologist or marriage and family therapist typically using videoconferencing software. All you need is an electronic device with a webcam and an internet connection. Like in-person therapy sessions, online counseling is encouraging, practical, confidential, and individualized. The counselors and therapists at Thriveworks in Littleton, CO are experienced in supporting clients with compassion and acceptance during their process of reflection and contemplation of challenges, alternatives, new perspectives, and resources.
While especially relevant at this time, online counseling is not a new concept. In fact, the first online self-help group dates back to 1982. Since 1982, the prevalence and popularity of online therapy has grown exponentially as people seek convenient and accessible mental health services. Online therapy offers convenience, comfort, security, and it can even prove life-changing for those who have been seeking therapy or counseling but have not otherwise been able to connect with a therapist.
